Portal Magic

Window in the sky

makes me wonder:

What’s beyond?

Walking the same paths and sitting in the same spots rewards the soul. I love seeing new places, exploring and discovering things for the first time. But there is a richness, a sweetness, a deep satisfaction in revisiting, reflecting, reconnecting.

Do you have a magical place that feeds your soul? I’d love to hear about it.

Be Here Now — and GROW

I’m sitting on the dock of the lake, experiencing time. Enjoying the present. Feeling my world expand.

This timespace is a treasure. As is every time and space. But sometimes, it is hard to feel the gift of the moment. Perspective helps. Silence helps. Nature helps. So when possible, I give myself these gifts.

Whenever and wherever from you’re reading this, I hope you’ll share your treasure of the moment in the comments. Thank you for sharing this timespace with me.

Water Lily Magic

Nature Magic heals. Flower Magic inspires. Beauty soothes my soul.

I am feeling grateful for my happy place. For time to walk. And time to sit. For cygnets and water lilies and red-winged blackbirds. For birds chirping and insects buzzing. For the sweet smell of the air.

Life is good.

And Again

Sing me a flower.
Unleash fount of creation.
Revive half-dead hope.

Springtime Mystery

Bundle of green leaves
What are you becoming when
Whorls unfurl

Determined to Do 2016 Differently

Sun rising over the Old Bahia Honda Bridge January 1, 2016

I could have started my blogging year on January 1, listing resolutions, describing dreams, or selecting word for the year. Except, I’ve already done that, over and over, and I want 2016 to be different. I want BIGGER, brighter, and bolder. Even with clear awareness that life is about the journey, not a destination, I want to get where I’ve been going, be who I’ve been becoming, revel in achievement. When I’ve enjoyed enough revelry, I’ll move on.

Old 7 Mile Bridge, Florida Keys

A few times a year, I see one of my favorite trees on the planet. It sprouted on a far-from-land stretch of the Old 7 Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys. I suspect that thousands of seeds have been deposited on that bridge by winds and birds, but this one grew. This one, is my teacher.

A Different Year

Yesterday, I discovered, and today, I joined, the Twitter Monthly Writing Challenge to write 500 words per day. It’s time to finish writing my books.

In the fall of 2015, I began noticing the miracles of the natural world. Haikus flowed and I liked writing them. More #iSeeBeauty coming in 2016, maybe with new inspiration from ronovan writes.

In October 2015, I started indoor rock climbing with my son, and was thrilled to discover that I love it. Climbing on.

In years past, I would have written a dozen more “I wants” and “I wills,” but 2016 is different, so I’m letting the above be enough.

What are your plans for 2016? What will you do, differently?

At the Core

IMG_1491Bold. Gold.
What secrets do you hold?

Born gloriously shining.
Suffered the greening, the ordinarying.
Returning, finally!, into the gold
that is your essence.
Again, only for an hour.

Preparing to fall
desiccate, decompose, rot.
Alchemize to new life.
